['The Vampire Diaries' - 'The Reckoning']
Well, tonight's episode of 'The Vampire Diaries' proved why I'm not one for superlatives. Two episodes after I declared 'The End of the Affair' my favorite episode ever, those evil masterminds in the 'TVD' writers' room went and topped themselves. Again. I used to wonder how the show could sustain itself at such a ridiculous pace -- this was a random Thursday night episode, not sweeps, not a midseason finale, not a very special timeslot -- but at this point I think we can all agree that these guys know what they're doing.
Honestly, I feel like Stefon from 'Saturday Night Live' when I try to describe this show to people. It. Has. Everything. Vampires, werewolves, ghosts, witches, hybrids -- like, you know when a vampire lady has an affair with a werewolf and creates an evil offspring with characteristics of both supernatural breeds?
